This traditional palm basket from Fuerteventura was made with white palm leaves (thinner and more delicate) and green palm leaves (more mature). María Hernández used several tools to make this Canarian palm basket, such as a wooden needle for the plaited palm leaves, an iron needle for the tomizas (palm rope), a small needle to prepare the palm leaves, a knife and scissors, and of course, her hands as the traditional craft is handmade.
